Zaisan Memorial, Ulaanbaatar

(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Pay tribute to the largest movement of motorized troops in the history of warfare at Zaisan Memorial, a monumental concrete sculpture perched on the top of a hill. A Soviet T34 tank mounted on a concrete pedestal commemorates the efforts of the World War II Mongolia People's Tank Brigade, which covered the distance from Moscow to Berlin. At the 360-degree observation deck, a concrete memorial in the shape of a colossal proletarian flag towers over a large curved mural depicting friendship between the peoples of the USSR and Mongolia.

  • This old Soviet Mongolian friendship monument stands on top of a tall hill over looking Ulaanbaataar. It is quite a hike up the stairs but the murals and the view is worth it 
  • On a small hill the correct conic shape is a monument to Soviet soldiers who participated in the battle of Khalkhin Gol! There is also tank t-34, to the left of the Hill situated religious complex with a high gilded statue of the Buddha. Around the Memorial there are various restaurants and bars. To see the capital of Mongolia, it is necessary to climb this hill and the city will be visible at a glance! Zaisan is a district of Ulan Bator, which certainly need to get!

  • Located near the hills to the south of the city, the hilltop memorial attracts visitors all day long. The main approach on foot is from the north and is a leisurely half hour climb for the young. The ...  more »

  • Great view of the city. The monument itself is rather interesting, but not necessarily amazing unless you are a huge fan of history - even then, it seems somewhat "meh". Still, definitely worth the climb for the view, and during the summer there is usually a man with an eagle you can hold and get pictures with.
  • Excellent view. A piece of yesteryear left over for today. A real price of history after the big changes in Russia.
  • A must see ! This place gives you the best panorama of the city. And the monument is impressively heavy of recent history.
  • I think this location have very good view. If you come Mongolia, must go here first.
  • Love the Zaisan Memorial mainly for the view and it is a challenge to go up the stairs. There are few refreshment and little hand painted crafts on the way but most enjoyable thing is the view at the top. Be careful when to go though as weather conditions play a huge part in your experience and I recommend the warm spring summer and autumn days. Not great for winter, rain of other conditions you don't like.
